To consider how tenuous and short-lived our existence, is to ponder some of its arresting moments of growth and the possibility such infinitesimal particles of the universe are just beginning to awaken.

Momentary Forever

Worlds become
Whether by the oregano and garlic aroma
The eagle’s screech on high
A distant parental swell of a daughter’s little league score
A boy’s first job
The brown bags with milk bottle on the bottom
Wonder Bread on top
A cheery “Have a nice day, Mrs. Gilbert”
Discovered independence brought forward
By Tropic of Cancer’s ink and paper visions
An off-base Tijuana week-end pass
Uniform pressed
Marksman medal polished
Old Spice weather pattern alight
Reality’s first XXX presentation
Painted eyes eliciting compassion
Where Penthouse and Playboy pages once ruled

To remember the boy of curiosity
Now a man of resolve
Conjures classic images
Housed now behind
Surreal windows
Foreshadowed urns of origins

Questioning of another kind
Makes buoyant the cushion of consciousness
Defying impending gravity
Asking again of the heart ever faithful
“Will I be ready to accept
Time’s next momentary need for me?”

they can make stronger metals in space than they can make on earth....contemplate that as a business strategy and the money it would take to back that. - What if we were to be smart enough to be bothered with?
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 5/8/2012
Yes, evolving is the necessary and awakening chapters in the walk through the time lapse of existence, even as we, we individuals, believe that ours is the only existence worth contemplating. Near the end we drool in our rockers and traverse back the same evolving highway that got us to where are, only we color and tint what we have been through with much softer shades of existence.

so so nice traveled us through 'perfect-ville', slow awakened questioning right to questiong our heart's readiness to accept the next level...nice!
